Spring is right around the corner, so prayerfully consider joining the OCMC mission team that will minister to the youth in Albania or the team that will offer evangelism among the Turkana in Kenya this March!
Do something amazing this spring! You are invited to serve the Church in Albania or Kenya through an incredible opportunity to share your faith. This traditionally is a time is for young people to experience a new and exciting place and accomplish things that take them out of their normal routine. This year, however, everyone is encouraged to apply for an OCMC spring Team and do something incredible for Christ.
A unique camp in Albania will creatively model how an Orthodox camp can foster a mission-minded awareness of the world that hungers and thirsts for Christ. Work side-by-side with OCMC missionaries and Church leaders to offer this unique camp for youth leaders from around Albania. This program was created in the United States for Orthodox Christian teens striving to make a difference in the world by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and giving to those in need.
Do the desert savannahs of Africa call you? An evangelism team will travel to the remote parts of northern Kenya in March to a region where women wear uncountable beaded necklaces and men use hand-carved walking sticks and walk for hours to learn about our Faith. This is Turkana, where you will encounter a people who hunger for the Gospel. Be prepared to share the amazing gift of salvation that knowing Christ offers us.
Mission work is central to our Orthodox faith and your participating this spring on an OCMC Team will expose you to the great needs that still exist in this world. In Mission in Christ’s Way, Archbishop Anastasios reminds us that “just as there is no Church without a worshipping life, so there cannot be a living Church without a missionary life.” This spring, apply for an Orthodox Mission Team and share Christ with those who do not yet know Him. Broaden your horizons, strengthen leadership skills, and develop a vision for the needs of the world by sharing the Gospel with those of a different culture. Grant opportunities available for Orthodox seminarians. Apply for a 2014 OCMC Team and share your faith!
